“I’ve never been to a ball or followed the yellow brick road, and I sure as hell never imagined myself living in a world of fairytale characters. Most of which want me dead. So when they come, because they will, I need to be ready.”
“And you think you could kill someone?”
“I know I could.”
When the academy in Nottingham burns down, sending in a new slew of fairytale classmates, Norah Hart comes face to face with new challenges, enemies and friendships. But the longer she is in this world, the more she realizes there is no getting out, leaving her with only one option–be prepared.
FORGET ME NOT is the second book in the Forgotten Fairytale series.

Okay, so let’s be honest here. After the first book, this one was a disappointment. It suffered from what my friend Kru, likes to call it, the Sequel Syndrome.
Wolf and Norah are happy together after the events of the last book. But, when the story starts, there’s new kids at school who have transferred after a fire wrecked theirs. In the bunch on transfer students is Venessa, Wolf’s ex and Jaxson, who has the hots for Norah. Yes, recipe for disaster right there.
Venessa tries her everything in her power to break Norah & Wolf up, but Norah doesn’t budge. At the same time, Norah has been assigned extra lessons with Jax by her teacher so that she can pass her class. Wolf is not impressed. There’s a series of events which occur, leading to Wolf breaking up with Norah because he believes their story cannot end happily.
Norah is heartbroken and falls in the arms of Jax, who by the way, is the perfect replica of Wolf. Everything from the way he holds himself to his interactions with Norah reminded me of Wolf from book 1. She gets together with Jax around the same time that Wolf realises he was an ass for breaking up with her and begs for forgiveness. He blames some outside forces for his mood swings to get away with it, but yeah, you get the point.
So, this book was a total bust, except for the ending. OH MY GOD! THAT ENDING!
It totally broke me! I was so not expecting that to happen, but it did and WOW! HOW COULD IT EVEN! OHMIGOSH!
I have lots of thoughts on that ending. IT RUINED MY FEELS!
It was also the only redeeming characteristic of this book for me!
If you read this book, read it only for the ending. That end will make up for all that was wrong with the book, sort of.
Now, I CANNOT WAIT FOR THE THIRD BOOK BECAUSE I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED!
